The Wall Street Journal on Af-Am Hair vs. Dominican Hair Salons

Image via The Wall Street Journal

Slow news day,  I guess.

"Armed with a blow dryer and brush, deft wrist action and shrewd promotional tactics, immigrants from the Dominican Republic are snipping away market share from African-American stylists whose mastery of black women's hair ensured for generations that their customers wouldn't, or couldn't, leave them. Promises of seemingly healthier hair, swifter service and far lower prices are wooing away a growing number of black women."

This article is totally meh for me. 

It's not deep enough for those who are unfamiliar with these salons to really understand the racial and economic politics involved 

For those who are familiar with the salons the article does not provide anything new. 

For those who have read it, any thoughts?
